Bathrooms in an apartment home can be small and have very little storage space.  So here is a great idea for our Southern Oaks residents who are looking to increase their bathroom storage space with a bit of flair.

This DIY project is pretty simple and you can get as creative as you want and should take just a couple of hours to complete.

All you need are a few simple items:

  • a piece of wood
  • paint if you don’t want to use a natural wood board
  • cups, jars, or small pots of some kind
  • hose clamps (available at any hardware store)
  • wood screws
  • a drill
  • a rubber band

The cups, jars, or pots are the important part of this project. Most of the character of this project comes from these, so find something fun, or cute, or swanky, or whatever. One note, something with straight sides will work a bit better than something with slanted sides. The hose clamp will hold better and there’s less chance of the thing popping out of the clamp if it has straight sides.

Start with your piece of wood and prepare and finish it as you like.  Once your board is complete, grab the rest of your materials.

  • Open the hose clamps and affix them to the wood as you like with your wood screws
  • Close the hose clamps loosely
  • Use the rubber band to strap the end of the hose clamp
  • Affix board to wall
  • Slip your cups into the hose clamps and tighten
